    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Not your fault

    hi loved ones of bipolar children,

    I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about five years ago. I've attempted suicide twice. I wanted to blame it on my mom because she is an easy target but anyone who's ever drawn a Punnett square in Biology knows that this is not the case. I grew up with a wonderful support system that was so good to me it proves that this disorder is genetic.

    I have a blog, http://bipolaratuva.blogspot.com , where patients and loved ones can learn from each other. I would like to discuss this guilt further because I think you'll find that we don't want you to take the blame.
